Celebrating its 21st year, the Fresh Start Charity Golf Classic presented by Valley Toyota Dealers welcomed nearly 230 golfers on Nov. 6 at Kierland Golf Course, 15636 N. Clubgate Dr. in Scottsdale, and grossed more than $360,000.

Proceeds from the Golf Classic benefit the life-changing programs and services offered at Fresh Start Women’s Foundation.

“The Fresh Start Men’s Board has worked so hard to make this event a success,” stated Brett Angner, Fresh Start’s Men’s Board chairman, in a press release. “Of course, we couldn’t do it without the support of the community, volunteers and staff that believe in Fresh Start’s mission. The Men’s Board believes that the foundation of our society is women and children, and it is an honor to support Fresh Start’s work.”

Golfers delighted in playing the beautiful links, enjoyed breakfast, lunch and beverages on the course and finished the event with a lively awards banquet and live auction. The format included a four-person scramble playing 12 par 3, four par 4 and two par 5 holes.

The unique tournament offered 12 hole-in-one opportunities to win an array of vehicles courtesy of Valley Toyota Dealers.

“Each year, the community looks forward to the Golf Classic and it’s a tremendous way for everyone to come together in support of such an important service that is provided in the Valley,” stated Susan Berman, president and CEO of Fresh Start, in the release.
